Tap at R’n’H. Pour is a black color with a slight tan head. Nose is of burnt molasses and chocolate mostly, with other underlying malt scents. Taste is similar to a baltic porter but boozy with some sweeter notes in the finish.

On tap at Rattle N Hum. Pour is jet black with no head present, if stirred a slight tan head appears. Aroma is heavy on the roasted and sweet malts with notes of vanilla, chocolate, molasses, and burnt sugar. Flavor is very interesting, kind of like a smoked Baltic porter but heavier on the boozy notes with a sweet molasses and brown sugar finish. Light carbonation, great mouth-feel.

Had this on Draft at Armsby Abbey stoutfest. Listed as an old ale and not a stout, but it kind of walks the line between the two styles. This was the surprise of the event. I absolutely love this beer. A nice maple sweetness in the background with light roasted notes perfectly balanced and amazingly thick and creamy. One of the best beers ive ever had. A+ founders.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasty aroma with dark fruits and anise. the flavor has roasted malts, dark fruits, floral hops, light anise-like apicy notes, and a light maple-like sweetness. Nice.

Had on tap at the stable in St Louis. Pours black with a medium tan head. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate, with hints of alcohol and vanilla. Taste does not represent the alcohol in the aroma. hints of maple, chocolate and light alcohol. Has a medium to light body. Overall an excellent beer.

Growler courtesy Jim - thanks! Dark cola color with a slight tan head fading to the sides of the glass. Aroma is oak, light maple, sweet almost smokey malt, vanilla, and perhaps faded hops. Taste is licorice, sweet raisin/malt, molasses, light hop bitterness toward the finish, and slight alcohol. Clean and smooth feel in the mouth. Unique presentation for the style and very tasty. Great beer.

sampled at last summer’s Michigan Brewer’s Fest - Pours near black and smells of roast malt and chocolate. This full bodied brew tastes of sweet, roast chocolate malt and a touch of hops. It comes off as a tasty blend of flavors that doesn’t seem as high in alcohol as it is. Very good.
